Forgot Password for Admin in SafeMode, HELP!

  FST2003 05:13 28 Aug 2005


Using XP Pro and I'm not sure why its doing this, but when I tried to enter my PC in safemode, thru admin it asked for a password.

So I choose my other user login and entered the password I knew for that one. All worked fine, but I would truly like to fix the problem...can someone please tell me how I can fix it?

Thanks for the help in advance,

Log into Windows in you normal account.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In the Open box, type "mmc" (without the quotation marks), and then click OK to start MMC.

3. Start the Local Users and Groups snap-in.

4. Under Console Root, expand "Local Users and Groups", and then click Users.

5. In the right pane, right-click Administrator, and then click Set Password.
6. Click Proceed in the message box that appears.

7. Type and confirm the new password in the appropriate boxes, and then click OK.
